Khamenei also addressed the current rivalry with Saudi Arabia, which he accused of being encouraged by the United States. It has maintained for years that normalizing relations with Israel depend on an Israeli withdrawal from Arab lands captured during the 1967 Middle East war, territory Palestinians seek for a future state.

Iran said on Monday cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the United States will further destabilize the Middle East, a senior official said, adding that Tehran will continue its presence in the region despite Washington's pressure to limit its influence.

"Some countries in the region should know", Khamenei said, "if they face the Islamic Republic, they will certainly lose".

Qassemi maintained that Iran's support was based on "requests of their legitimate governments and in line with fighting terrorism in the region".

"Their plan is to arm and prepare these countries for a confrontation with the Islamic Republic", he told a crowd of workers ahead of the country's Labor Day.


The Leader then highlighted the need for supporting Iranian producers and businesses to deal with the enemy's economic war, calling on all Iranian officials and people to purchase homemade products and support the local market.

Tensions between the two countries remain higher than ever amid their struggle for regional dominance with their continued involvement with multiple regional conflicts, as well as religious disputes over their interpretations of Islam.

Later, in a series of tweets, Khamenei accuses the U.S. of creating instability in the Middle East, and warns it will "certainly suffer from defeat" if it confronts the Islamic Republic.

In Riyadh, Pompeo reassured Saudi Arabia that the United States would exit Iran's 2015 multinational nuclear deal, unless European signatories of the accord "fix" it.
